It’s crazy, when I think about it. I wear makeup every day. Before I turned 30, I almost never wore makeup, but now I feel like I can’t really go without it. I’ve gotten really used to my eyeshadow, my mascara, and my brow pencil. Without them, I feel like I have no eyes. Does it make you feel that way too?
My makeup is very light, very “day look” most of the time. And when the evening comes, and I want to impress the crowds (getting a little carried away here :) I add a few layers of eyeshadow and mascara and do a smoky eye. And every time, I’m impressed by the power of makeup.
That’s what I wanted to capture in this series with Liu Wen, who I shot for Estée Lauder. Ok, unlike me, Liu doesn’t really need makeup, but this sublime evening look made her go from young lady to femme fatale and it makes me…totally want it.
Even the red lips, yes. Even if I’m incapable of not smudging it. It’s so gorgeous!
What about you? What’s your day to night transformation?
